     Clara Elizabeth Saltmarsh Clara was the daughter of Emma Saltmarsh, father unknown, and was reared by her grand-parents John & Elizabeth Saltmarsh. They had a large family of 15 children and Clara had aunts & an uncle younger than herself so it was quite easy for her to be accepted as another child of John & Elizabeth. Emma, her mother, was the eldest child of this family so no doubt she had to help her mother bring up the younger children anyway.

Clara was living at Ringarooma when she married and this is where her mother Emma lived after she married Joseph TORLEY.

At her Golden Wedding celebration she talked about her wedding day. She was married at the new Methodist Church at DERBY. She was given away by her husband's cousin Mr Sam Diprose, Mr Charles Diprose was best man, Miss Annie Diprose was bridesmaid, and the wedding breakfast was held at the home of Mr Edgar Diprose. The wedding cake was made in a campoven. They walked through the snow to the Church and she wore a dress of pink & grey satin with a tight-fitting bodice and a very fullskirt, 'bustled' at the back. She had a tulle veil and orange blossom and carried a bouquet. She weighed 7 stone at the time and wore a size 2 shoe and measured 19 inches around the waist. (She still has herwedding frock 50 years later and not one of her grand-daughters can fiti nto it). The married couple started their life together then moved to YOLLA in a Bullock Dray. They lived in a two-roomed shanty while the land was cleared and (knownas Gran) bought comfort to families when help was needed. She was an active member of the Country Women's Association & Red Cross. Clara was presented with a medal from the Red Cross Society in recognition of her work during the 'Great War'. She walked and drove for miles getting items for the parcels for the boys serving at the Front.

In the Yolla Cemetery record book her death is recorded as 'Gran' Neal (Clara) aged 84 years 17th June 1950. There is a story that she had an aversion to the Cemetery and requested the undertaker not to take her there when she died, however, he assured her that he had never had received one complaint! Her married name was Neal. She was born on 11 July 1866 at Longford, Tasmania, Australia. She married Herbert Daniel Neal, son of Daniel Neal and Emma Jane French, on 30 July 1888 at Derby, Tasmania, Australia. Clara Elizabeth Saltmarsh died on 17 June 1950 at Yolla, Tasmania, Australia, at age 83. She was buried on 19 June 1950 at Wynyard, Tasmania, Australia.
